Residence for Architecture Students
Barcelona, Spain

Joining forces HARQUITECTES and dataAE architects have designed this ecological residence for architecture students located next to the ETSAV (UPC) Architecture School of Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona. The building is an excellent example that ecological conscience, using prefabricated structures, and high architectural ambitions can go hand in hand. The project has been chosen as one of the twelve finalists for the FAD Prize 2013.
